From time to time, vape shop owners ask me if they can embed the Steam Engine calculators on their site. I have usually declined, but I do see a demand for some kind of integration. Here is what I have come up with: You can now add the URL to… Read more »
I took a look at the Xtar PB2S 2 charger. A promising product, but I haven’t yet decided if it lives up to the promises.
How to use the heat flux in the Wire Wizard to find the optimal watts for a clapton coil?
I was able to find the density and heat capacity for SS-904L in this datasheet and some resistance-at-temperature values that I could use to calculate TFR in this datasheet. This has now been added to the materials of the Wire Wizard and Coil calculators. As I haven’t tried this coil… Read more »
When combining different materials in parallel, the Wire Wizard sometimes failed to fetch the temperature data for the materials of the individual strands correctly, resulting in an inaccurate TCR/TFR output.
Regarding the Coil Wrapping calculator: How is Leg Length measured? it says “total per coil,” does this mean the sum of both legs on either end of a coil? where does the ‘leg’ start?
What should I do if I am using mesh coils since there is no mesh option?
I’ve had numerous requests to add N90 (Nichrome 90) to the materials in Steam Engine. Quite a few vapers use it for their coils, and most of them seem happy with the performance.
You may or may not have noticed that the Steam Engine calculators are now loading a little bit faster than before.
Now you can add your own custom wire materials, batteries or mods to Steam Engine.
